Renewable Wind Energy farms have often been built with EPC Agreements.
We have noted that owners like EPC agreements . EPC contracts effectively organize the complexity of the projects and the need to organize the work with a supplier who deal with a plurality of operators in the construction of Wind Turbine Energy Farms.
Do parties utilize FIDIC agreements or EPC agreements are drafted and customized by the players in the business sector?
Our expertise is, that often EPC agreements are proposed by expert constructors, utilizing a model which has been developed on the basis of the best agreement text available in the market adjusted to Italian Construction Law.
Important German manufacturers of Wind Turbine Energy Farms utilize such models that have been developed during the years. They apply them taking into due consideration the need to customize the text to the Italian law, which has a specific section for construction agreements. In particular the Italian Civil Code does have a specific section for Contractors Agreements, article 1655 onwards.
The above mentioned approach is probably a practical approach, in order to mix the owners’ experience with the best practice in International Construction and the need to comply with provisions laid down in the Italian Law (which are well known by owners).
